GreetingsThe type of pain you describe is very unlikely to be originating from your heart. It is most likely skeletal muscle pain, which is typically harmless, not life threatening, but could be annoying. Other less likely sources would include joints, nerves, breast tiissue and the tissues that covers your lung, though these are less likely. You may try tylenol, Advil or a combination of both. Advil 400 or 600 mg three times daily for 2-3 days might just work. If your symptoms persist, more than 2 additional days, have it checked by your doctor. Let me know if you need any more clarification
